Wow. Loser Lame Duck Wisconsin Dems Stunned

They even got a judge to let a legislator out of jail to try to ram through a last minute contract for state employees--but the Dem Senate Majority Leader, who had lost his reelection bid in November to Republican physician and surgeon Dr. Pam Galloway, voted NO.

Absolutely amazing.

Then the union called him a whore.

Contract negotiations are usually a quiet affair, but Republican Gov.-elect Scott Walker ignited a bitter debate when he demanded last month that the current administration stop negotiations.

He said he wanted state workers to make deeper concessions to help him deal with a projected $150 million deficit in the current fiscal year and a projected $3.3 billion shortfall in the next two-year state budget. He even went so far as to say he might consider abolishing state employee unions.

On Wisconsin. Republicans swept both state houses:

Democrats currently control the Assembly 49-45 with two independents and three vacancies. Democrats have an 18-15 majority in the Senate. In January Republicans will hold a 60-38-1 majority in the Assembly and 19-14 in the Senate.

...and took the U.S. Senate with TEA partier and businessman Ron Johnson.

Oh, look, Dem U.S. Sen. Herb Kohl is under 50%.

Let's stun some more Dems.
